CSYFA August Newsletter with Important Information

by Carol Stream Youth Football Association, 2019-08-07T08:55:46.000-07:00August 07 2019, at 08:55 AM PDT

Hello Panther Parents,

We are now in our second week of practices and it great to see all the kids learning and having fun out on the practice fields. It is also great to see all the parents out at the fields with all the young and hopefully soon to be Panthers and Panther Cheerladers.

We are coming up on our first preseason games this weekend and the good part is all the Panther teams are playing at home and all games will be played on the GBN Field.

Here again is the game schedule for this Saturday, 8/10.

Coaches will determine what time the players need to show up for pregame warm-ups:

Saturday August 10

Time Division Home Team Away Team

10am Flag Carol Stream White Carol Stream Black

11:30am 8U Carol Stream Downers Grove

1pm 9U Carol Stream Tri-City

2:30pm 11U Carol Stream Downers Grove

4pm Varsity Carol Stream Tri-City and Downers Grove

There will be concessions at the games this weekend. CSYFA is going to try something new this year and hope we can gain support from all. We will be using one of Shake the Can money jars at the Concession stand to collect any spare change for a charity each month during the season. CSYFA will take suggestions on what charity we should collect for. The only month that will not need a suggestion will be October as CSYFA has always support Breast Cancer Awareness and that month the donation jar will always go to Breast Cancer charity. We will begin this year with August’s charity drive collecting for ALS. One of our very own Panther families is fighting this fight and any support we can all provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully by now all Parents have received our newest team fundraiser the Domino’s Pizza cards. This optional fundraiser is to help each individual team with their end-of-season party. Please make sure to put a good effort on this fundraiser as this directly benefits your team.

CSYFA will be having a Trailer Sale next week Tuesday – Thursday (8/13 – 8/15) at Red Hawk practice fields. We will be selling old and new jerseys from years past as well as some old helmets to raise money for our jersey change next year. Please come out and take a look and hopefully purchase for a good cause. Please remember there is no practice for all teams on Monday (8/12) as mandated by BGYFL due to a Coaches Meeting.

Thanks again to all the parents for their support on parking situation at Red Hawk. The repaving of the parking lot is about to begin. We are working to get some practice times over at GBN field to help alleviate some of the parking issues. Your coaches will be communicating any practice changes to you directly.

Here are some upcoming dates of importance:

Preseason Week 1 Games = Saturday 8/10/2019 at GBN

Preseason Week 2 Games = Saturday/Sunday 8/17-18 places to be determined and will be notified by coaches

Pep Rally = Saturday 8/17/2019 at 7pm at GBN High School Field. We will have Rockin Jump and Bling Wear sales going on that evening

Picture Day = Sunday 8/18/2019 at GBN High School Fieldhouse. Times will be given by coaches/team moms. Please remember do not wear cleats in Fieldhouse.

Opening of Regular Season = Saturday/Sunday 8/24 – 8/25. Games, places and times will be set and distributed shortly by BGYFL and then the coaches will inform their parents.

We look forward to giving the kids a great team environment to enjoy the game of football safely.

Hope everyone has a great football season.

GO PANTHERS!!!

“There is only one way to succeed in anything, and that is to give it everything” —Vince Lombardi Joe Vasquez started his football career with the Carol Stream Youth Football Association when he was only 5 years old. Working his way up through the program, Joe faced many challenges – for those of you with a son that is a stripper, you know the constant struggle. Joe has never let those circumstances stop him. Joe has played on the varsity team at Glenbard North since his sophomore year. Last year as a Junior, he was named First Team All-Conference, and All-Area for DuPage Valley Conference. Joe was also part of the Glenbard North varsity team that made it to the second round of the IHSA Class 7A playoffs in November of last year. In a write up about Joe, Dave Oberhelman of the Daily Herald stated that “His athleticism and his football IQ made him an expert at pulling down the line on trap plays and sweeps”. During a two-part process that began last year at USA Football Camp, Joe was selected to play for Team USA. He took part in intense training sessions that occupied him from morning till night. Earlier this year, Joe was chosen to be a part of the United States Under – 17 National Team that beat Japan (44 – 7) in the eight International Bowl. The game took place at the AT&T Stadium – home to the Dallas Cowboys. A dream come true for him. Joe accredits his success to the support of his family, friends, and the Carol Stream Youth Football Association Panthers. Colleges that have shown interest in Joe are Northwestern, Kansas State, Miami of Ohio, and South Dakota State. Joe is proof that if you give it your all, you will succeed. Picture of Joe will be in the Photo Albums section of the website. If there are any Past Panthers that would like to note some positive outcomes in life that can be attributed to their experiences with the Carol Stream Youth Football program please email to teddost@yahoo.com.

"Confidence doesn't come out of nowhere. It's a result of something...hours and days and weeks and years of constant work and dedication" - Roger Staubach Over the next two weeks, we'd like to take the opportunity to highlight a couple of our own. These boys have started their football journey with the Carol Stream Youth Football Association. Committing themselves to hours of "constant work and dedication" their football careers are taking them to the next level. They are PANTHERS. DANIEL BERRY first played with the CSYFA in the 6th grade. During the 8th grade, his coaches recommended him to the USA Football's regional camp which took place last year. Daniel not only worked with the elite high school coaches, he also worked with college coaches on technique and fundamentals. Because of his performance at the regional camp, he was invited to play offensive line at USA Football's developmental games in Canton, OH. The camp took place over 5 days, and included players from all over the country. Based on his performance there, coaches then invited Daniel to the USA Football's U14 National Team. Daniel was able to play as part of the USA Football's International Bowl which took place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. The pace and intensity of the practices and games were at college level. The opportunity to play against the Japan Team has been a highlight of Daniel;s football career thus far. His Mom, Linda Berry, believes that CSYFA has provided Daniel with confidence, skills, and qualities that led to his selection to the USA Football's Team. Up next week......JOE VAZQUEZ. If you have a Panther player you'd like for us to highlight please send us their story. It gives kids an opportunity to read about players like themselves, and to show that hard work really does pay off. Also note as the website is a little tricky I am still working to get pictures of these players posted, please be patient.
